Samurai Horseman – World Showcase, Japan Pavilion Epcot

We’ve visited the Japan Pavilion quite a number of times over the years – it’s difficult to find new ways of photographing familiar things. The two samurai on horseback that stand guard to the castle have proven to be photographically “tricky” for me. What I mean is that I’m never really satisfied with my images – they lack the sunshine that would make them pop.

They’re beautifully presented statues, wonderfully sculptured and highly detailed but lack bright natural lighting. With that said, here’s my best “shot” at making something out of a poor original image.

Oh how I wish this sculpture were out in the open against a beautiful blue sky!

And while we’re at it, the torii gate is another of my hard to capture icons at the pavilion. The Epcot background always throws me… who wants to see the “golf ball” peeking from behind the gate!

No Epcot “golf ball” but now we see France and England in the background!

If you haven’t had the chance to wander around the Japan Pavilion at Epcot yet, please find the time. Carol and I will often spend an entire afternoon strolling through the many beautiful exhibits and of course you’ve got to see Mitsukoshi Department Store.

The Red Bridge

On a cloudy day, the red bridge stands out – the fish swim and the water flows.

3 Parks 1 Day! 10 hours! WooHoo!

Not bad for an experienced couple – we fell in love in the Magic Kingdom back in 1973, honeymooned at Disney in 1974 and celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary in 2014 at Disney! I believe Carol and I have bankrolled a few Disney movies over the years with what we’ve spent – worth every penny!

Some additional rescued images from my dead hp laptop –
